Selling your property quickly
Finally selling a property is a thrilling and exciting time but for many it can take time to reach that point. However, it is possible to take some control back over the situation because you can make your property appeal to buyers by simply following the tips below.
De-clutter- This is where you will have to be quite ruthless because you will need to throw away things that you no longer need in order to create space. You can also store away those items that you do not immediately need such as small items of furniture, books and even magazines. Creating space will help to enhance light.
Clean – A deep clean will get your home looking and smelling spotless. Clean carpets and hard flooring using the correct products and also focus on the kitchen and bathroom. These rooms are vital to buyers and so you have to make them look their best. A thorough polish and dust should be enough to get your property looking its best.
DIY – Leave no stone unturned, so do all you can to complete all jobs regardless of how small it may be. Problem doors, leaking taps and even squeaky floorboards can drive potential buyer’s crazy. Do all you can to fix these issues and you will give your buyers one less thing to worry about.
Interior – Create as much space as possible and use light to make rooms seem bigger. Choose neutral colours and themes so that buyers can see your property for what it is. If you have to paint then do so and make sure that you do not use bold colours as this can be off-putting.
Exterior – Outside space is crucial so make sure that the front and rear of the property is tidy. Mow lawns, jetwash patios and driveways and even purchase new plants. Remove any waste or rubbish and add new plants in where needed to make the garden look fresh.
